Palisades Senior Lead Officer Brian Espin.

Pacific Palisades Senior Lead Officer Brian Espin released the crime map for September 3 to 8. He reminded residents, “I want to encourage everyone to please continue to call the police when you see a crime occurring.

“The main complaint I hear from the community is the wait times for our dispatch to answer the call,” Espin said. “I understand the frustration and annoyance with having to wait on hold for anywhere up to 45 minutes (sometimes more).”

Espin said not to hang up, because without the calls, he doesn’t have the data he needs to show there are crimes are occurring. Police and cars are allocated are based on crime statistics and calls. He said, “I have heard from a couple residents telling me they call LAPD, but then shortly hang up after an extended hold time.”
